Tackle Jonah Williams is exactly who the Buffalo Bills need to bolster what was a bad offensive line in 2018.
The Alabama product is expected to be a top 15 pick and could be projected to go around the Bills at 9.
Williams talked with reporters and mentioned Buffalo: “The Buffalo Bills have a Great coaching staff,” Williams said. “Obviously familiar with offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, being my OC two years ago. I’m not one to speculate on NFL team’s current situations, but I’d be happy to play for that team.”
Offensive line isn’t the sexist first round selection, but the Bills need to protect and build around their second year quarterback Josh Allen.
This from the Draft Network is how to describe him: “Jonah Williams is a technically refined offensive tackle who projects most favorably into a physical offensive front. Williams’ pass protection skills would be best utilized in quicker passing schemes to protect his lack of length from being exposed on deeper pass sets, but that’s no reason to dismiss his skills as an offensive tackle and move inside to guard. Should be a rookie starter at the NFL level and provide quality play on the outside by the end of his first year.”
He fits to what the Bills want to do.
I think the plan would be moving Dion Dawkins to right tackle and selecting or signing a left tackle.
With cap space and draft capital, there should be no excuses to build a solid offensive line.
